Protostriker M is my first original game. Up until now I've been honing my programming skills by writing various simple clones. The game was meant to be fairly simple so that I would be able to finish it in a reasonable amount of time.

Since I started to learn programming, I've been excited to try and create a game that looked, played, and sounded like the first video games that I ever laid eyes on, NES games. I'm still fascinated by them. I think I was pretty successful in that as I stuck pretty close to the NES technical limitations, using them as a soft restriction rather than obsessing over them.

I learned a ton while making this game and I hope you enjoy it!
